Yadkinville residents discover temporary crowns for use on front teeth
If trauma causes damage to your front teeth, you probably wanted to have it corrected quickly. Located in Yadkinville, Dr. William Virtue of Virtue Dental Care offers temporary crowns on front teeth to give patients an efficient solution to restoring a beautiful smile.
Uses for crowns
Crowns correct dental issues. Crowns can be used to repair broken or chipped teeth, or to cover a dental implant. When a tooth chips it can create jagged edges, making it difficult to eat, smile, or talk without feeling discomfort inside the mouth. A minor crack may not be painful, but if a large part of the tooth breaks off, nerve damage can occur. Crowns help to protect the natural tooth and root.
Temporary versus permanent
While we offer CEREC crowns with immediate results, these crowns are best for teeth in the back of the mouth. Although they appear natural and have numerous benefits, CEREC crowns lack the artistic touch of laboratory created crowns. For patients in need of a fast replacement for a front tooth, a temporary crown can be placed, while the lab fabricates a long-lasting, natural looking restoration.
Benefits of temporary crowns
- They are an immediate solution to a damaged tooth.
- Temporary crowns protect the tooth root until a longer lasting restoration is placed.
- They help hold the space for the tooth, while keeping the patient comfortable as an exposed tooth can be sensitive.
